Staring at the possibility of thousands of seats going vacant and facing imminent closure under AllIndiaCTE norms, private engineering colleges are now offering all kinds of lures to attract students. From fees as low as Rs 2,500 per year to free laptops and two-wheelers, colleges are now adopting new marketing strategies to woo students…

Desperate to get admissions, an institute in Gujarat is offering fee as low as Rs 2,500 per year, while another college has hired commission agents to bring students. According to Mirror report, the college is paying agents a commission of Rs 10,000 for every student they bring in for admission. ..

Industry veterans have also warned about unskilled Indian youth. Recently, CP Gurnani, CEO & MD of Tech Mahindra said that 94 per cent of engineering graduated were not fit for hiring, while chairman of Manipal Global Education, TV Mohandas Pai claimed that the country has 10 crore people in the 21-35 age-group with bad skills, who are unsuited for the economy.


Weeding out these second-and-third-rate colleges with matching faculty and equipment, many belonging to politicians especially in the South, is inevitable.
